On your wedding day you’ll want to feel beautiful from head to toe and from inside to outside, and whilst you probably won’t need any help from us to find your dream gown, we can offer a wealth of advice on sleeking your curves into shape and getting picture-perfect pins.
Looking your best is all about feeling confident, and for some brides-to-be that means shedding a few unwanted pounds before the big day. If the idea of the gym fills you with dread or you struggle to fit regular workouts around your schedule, try wearing one of the amazing ShaToBu shapers every day in the run up to your wedding. These streamlining shapewear shorts incorporate resistance bands which help your muscles work harder: research has shown that wearing ShaToBu for at least 12 hours a day, 7 days a week can increase your calorie burn by 12% – over a year, that’s 30,000 extra calories burned!
For a toned silhouette under your wedding dress, a shaping slip can help to smooth out your problem areas. Trinny and Susannah’s All in One Body Smoother is an open front style which will define your waist and slim down the back, tummy, bottom hips and thighs, whilst giving you the freedom to wear whatever bra you choose. Alternatively, brides opting for strapless gowns should try the Spanx Hide and Sleek Strapless Full Slip, which offers a total-body smoothing effect and has no visible seams so it makes a great base under even super-fine fabrics.
It is of course traditional for blushing brides to wear stockings underneath their dresses, and for those who love the look Falke’s Seidenglatt stockings give legs a glossy finish and either the off-white or nude shades will finish your look perfectly. Falke’s Tulle suspender belt in white or nude will secure them in style. If you’re more of a hold ups girl, Trasparenze’s Athena Bridal hold ups have a gorgeous deep lace top and come in white or ivory so you can match them easily to your gown. And while we’re talking time-honoured traditions, snap up the Aurora Bridal Garter by Trasparenze in white with a ribbon trim in French navy for a super pretty ‘something blue’,
